Fished DV this morning from 6:30 till about 11:00 for two hits and that is it. Had a good time weather was great. Took fellow sniffer Ryanerb with us. It is always fun meeting new sniffers. Wish the fishing could of been better.

See you on the water

I gotta say Woody is a great guy. He knows what he is doing out there on Del Valle. He's got a great setup, and it was great getting out on the water with him. Even though we didn't catch anything, it was a great morning!

Hello Woody, sorry your luck wasn't with you today.I fished there on tues solo from about 8:00 am to 3:30 pm great weather and with a bonus caught only two fish but one weighed in at 9# the other was a 1 1/2#er.Caught them on f7 in the fire tiger and orange toplining about 100' back.My buddy fishing in another boat landed two also but one of his went 12# 8oz fishing a generic type salmon colored excel.Was there yesterday from 11 am till about 4:00 for four hits but didn't stick. My same buddy was also out there caught 4 fish up to 4# trolling 10' with that same lure and also a small plastic imitation minnow.I''ll be there sunday with my pooch and will try to get a spot to camp so I can get an early start on mon.A guy yesterday just in front of us in swallow bay close to beach area by the rock wall did pick uo a 7# on a large black and gold rapala.

I was at DV this morning too. Started at 8:30am and ended at 4pm. Had to test out my new kicker motor. Yes it was slow trolling day, but managed to land 2 and lost 1. One of them weighed at 8lb 7oz - 23". The other one was just a dink. All caught on J7 Firetiger. Another nice day! ;D
